announces that OfficeMax is offering the 8x8/Aastra co-branded 6755i IP business phone, bundled with the 8x8 Virtual Office suite of business phone services, at approximately 400 select OfficeMax retail locations in the United States and online.
The plug-and-play 8x8/Aastra 6755i IP phone serves as an endpoint for the 8x8 Virtual Office hosted IP PBX business phone service, currently in use by over 17,000 businesses. 8x8 Virtual Office provides businesses with a complete, enterprise class phone system at a fraction of the cost of a traditional PBX and roughly half the cost of traditional business phone service. The 8x8/Aastra IP phones plug into any broadband Internet connection to allow users to immediately make or receive calls without performing any network configuration or firewall manipulation. In addition, the 8x8/Aastra IP phones deliver enhanced features including corporate directory display and lookup, extension dialing and transfers, intercom paging, shared line appearance and an embedded XML browser.
Aastra USA will supply inventory of the 6755i Virtual Office IP phone to OfficeMax, while 8x8 provisions and manages the 8x8 Virtual Office service. In addition to full duplex speakerphone functionality, programmable softkey appearances and LCD display screens, all models support "Power over Ethernet" and come equipped with dual auto-sensing switched Ethernet ports to eliminate additional wiring for a computer and simplify installations.
